My Program:
Starting with SparkPeople once again to achieve my weight and health goals. No good excuse for moving backwards, but intend to move forwards starting today...

Must focus on getting more exercise daily.

My faith, family, and friends are the most important to me in life.

Enjoy exploring my faith by myself and with other believers, along with hiking, rainbows, sunshine, friendship, and travel. .

    Hi Ruth! I don't know if you'll remember me, but it's Amy, I was part of Catholic Critters about a year and a half ago. I kind of fell off the face of the planet because I got pregnant and had a baby girl last October! Her name is Gianna, named for Saint Gianna, and she is absolutely precious. How are you doing? I just wanted to stop by and say hello. I am back trying to lose weight again! I am actually below my pre-pregnancy already b/c of breastfeeding, but my weight loss has slowed down now that my body has gotten used to it, so I'm back! I hope you're doing great accomplishing your weight loss goals. Shoot me a note back when you get this, I would love to hear how you're doing!

    Hi, I love the saying you have under your posts! I couldn't have said it better myself. Just thought I would tell you I agree and people are definitely realizing it now more than ever.

    God Bless You,

    I well remember Charles and Diana's wedding day, what a sad and beautiful person she was.
    Do you know which part of England any of your ancestors were from?
    I am very lucky in my sons choices of wife. They married two sisters and I have so much in my life now through them. Although Brent and Nong were married in England in 2007, they had their Thai wedding in January this year, what an amazing experience.
    Please..keep in touch Ruth,
    best wishes
